My wife and I intend to travel to Europe in June-July 2018. We will have in excess of 350-400k Qantas Frequent Flyer points.
My question is: Flying out of Brisbane to Hamburg return, what would be my option/s as to how best to utilise them?

Hi, a few points to get you started:- what class of travel are you after- which routing do you want to use to get to Europe - Asia or Middle East- are you comfortable booking separate legs - more points expense but better availability.cheers
Thanks for the reply j30max. We're happy enough to turn right on the plane but would prefer premium economy, Asia is preferable, and am happy to book seperate legs if I have to. I suppose what I'm after is a site that can assist me with my queries. We normally travel to Europe with Emirates out of Brisbane, no Premium Economy and can't use my points.

Not many options on PE out of BNE. CX via HKG is your best bet. But given only one flight a day out of BNE you'll struggle to find availability. Be prepared to transit in SYD/MEL.

Cathay Pacific has 11 flights a week to Brisbane - the daily service is non-stop and the four-times-weekly service usually detours via Cairns but can still be booked as 'Brisbane-Hong Kong'.

Cant advise on flights and points availability even after all these years its a lottery and you just need to do the hard yards and search, search and search again.

Is QF61 BNE - NRT with a JAL connection an option?
